“Barthelonaaa”

Just a few pictures that I have taken over the past 3 months. Such an amazing city…

I was given the assignment to document Passeig de Gracia and Ramblas de Cataluña, two major streets in Barcelona for my Urban Interventions class. Instead of snapping pictures of the streets themselves, I decided to focus on the small details along the “calles” that people may not notice at first… enjoy!

 


valé!

Exceptionally-BUSY can’t even begin to describe my first full (fantastic) week here in Spain. Somewhere between the puddle jumping, flight hopping, tour taking, bus riding, bar crawling and a little bit of class, I did manage to knock a few things off of my elaborate to-do list. After a day long siesta due to my new 5 am bedtime I put on some very, very American nike kicks, a sorority tee shirt, black yoga pants and a pair of sunglasses in effort to hide my face from the stares I knew I was about to endure because of my outfit.  The rebel was slung around my neck while I made my trek uptown to Park Güell… where I was absolutely moved to tears by Gaudi’s work. Here is a little bit of what I captured. Honestly, the pictures don’t do it justice—This is a place you really do have to see for yourself.

casi!

As I sit here and realize that I only have 3 more weeks before I head off to Spain, I can’t believe how fast this summer has flown by! I just returned from an amazing weekend down in Charleston, my second home, and am now fully prepared to ship myself off and experience whatever is awaiting me overseas. This is going to be my last post until I start the real deal, once I am settled in. I figure this is more or less a final “visual checklist” (I would much rather look at a compilation of photographs than a stack of words)  than anything interesting for you all to read.

Ok…maybe I can live without the Vicky Christina Barcelona love-triangle but I do love her hat.

Adios!

Gaudi, not gaudy

I didn’t think it was possible to be more excited than I was 2 days ago to start my time abroad, until I found out where in the city I would be living. PERFECTO. Hello new neighborhood…

Hola! I am super excited that I have started this blog because that means the countdown has BEGUN for my semester abroad! Thanks to my great room mate and friend, I am hopefully going to get the hang of this thing pretty quickly…Until then, here is a quick preview of some of the things I am looking forward to seeing while in Barcelona.
